What is the Dustless Blaster?

  The Dustless Blaster works by mixing water and abrasive inside the blast tank. By introducing water we’re drastically increasing mass and energy the machine is putting out, while eliminating dust. Imagine throwing a handful of dry sand, versus throwing a handful of wet sand; which one is going to have a more significant impact on the target? Not only will the wet sand hit the target harder, but it won’t disintegrate and become a cloud of dust like the dry sand will. This is the very simple principle behind Dustless Blasting. The Dustless Blasting system has many advantages over the old, outdated dry blasting method!

Environmentally Friendly!

 

   
And A Whole Lot More!
 
None of the paint adhesion problems that are seen with Soda Blasting
 
Faster
 
The Dustless Blaster can strip a car in under 2 hours.
 
Minimal Dust
 
The abrasive gets trapped in water and grounded, eliminating the plume of dust.
 
Lower Abrasive Consumption
 
The Dustless Blaster uses use less media to do more work.
 
Abrasive Flexibility
 
The Dustless Blaster can use almost any abrasive that sinks in water.
 
No Warping
 
The water prevents friction and won’t warp thin metal like sandblasting will.
 
Safe for Workers
 
Recycled bottle glass contains no free silica, the leading cause of silicosis.
 
Less Containment Needed
 
In most cases, expensive, time consuming containment does not need to be set up.
 
Doesn’t Affect Nearby Workers
 
Never sacrifice productivity, other workers can work nearby unaffected.
 
Leaves a Paint Ready Surface
 
The rust inhibitor decontaminates the metal leaving a clean, chloride free paint ready surface.
 

What kind of abrasive does we use?

The Dustless Blaster can use just about any abrasive that sinks in water and doesn’t dissolve. Our favorite is recycled bottle glass because it’s clean, cheap, good for a wide range of jobs and eco-friendly.  For really tough jobs we can use Garnet.

Since water is used, won’t it rust metal?

We use a rust inhibitor  to prevent flash rusting for up to 72 hours. This extremely effective rust inhibitor is added to the blast water to prevent flash rust during blasting, and then used to rinse after blasting is complete.

What happens to the abrasive after blasting?

The abrasive will settle on the ground beneath or very near to whatever you’re blasting. If you’re in a place where you need to dispose of this media, the easiest way is to spread out some plastic before you begin blasting, and roll it up after blasting.

Can the Dustless Blaster cause warping like sandblasting can?

Warping occurs when the metal heats up due to friction from dry abrasive. The Dustless Blaster will not cause warping, because friction and heat are reduced by the water. In fact the temperature of the metal being blasted usually comes down about 10 degrees from ambient. Some people say warping can still occur regardless of temperature, we disagree. Have you ever seen a blacksmith working cold metal?

Will the Dustless Blaster damage chrome and glass?

Glass and chrome can be damaged by any kind of abrasive blasting. You should always mask off the chrome and glass prior to blasting.
